Arewa Youth Assembly on Wednesday, August 9 held a protest to demand for the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu over the unity of Nigeria.
The group who took to the streets under Police watch said unity of the country is non-negotiable while calling for the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The group insisted that Nnamdi Kanu is undermining the sovereignty of the country through his agitation for Biafra.

Nigerian Tribune reports that the assembly who staged a peaceful protest in Abuja further threatened that if the Federal Government failed to get Kanu apprehended it would mobilize over one thousand youths to stop governments’ activities in Northern states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
It was gathered that the Speaker of the AYA, Muhammed Salihu who disclosed this during the protest said the group came out after ten days ultimatum given to the government in its letters earlier addressed to the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, alongside other Security Chiefs on why the IPOB leader must be arrested.
The protesters carried various placards which read, “Though our tough might differ, but in unity and brotherhood we stand; Individuals’ blood does not worth anything of Kanu” and many others. The protest began from Unity Fountain, Maitama down to the entrance of Aso Villa, Abuja.
Speaking further, Salihu said: “Basically we are here for the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu because he is causing lawlessness and youth agitations in various part of the country. Any youth under any group now is hiding under the Kanu agitation to perpetrate evils.”
“We are now watching the action of government because the ten days ultimatum has lapsed, if the Federal Government fails now, we will mobilize over one thousand youths from various parts of North to stop governments’ activities”, he stated.
Also speaking, the Clerk of the assembly, Desmond Minakaro said: “the only way the October 1st can be averted is when the IPOB leader is not allowed to continue creating a State within a State which is against the constitution of our country.”
